The Rohan (or another) Family

Hello. I am a freelance writer, attempting to find information about the Rohan family.
My character is a young male who comes from a family who is descended in a long line of French aristocrats. However, his father, who enjoys adventure, chose to move to America in the 1700s.
I was thinking of placing him in the Rohan family, but was seeking advice from experts who would be able to direct me into a better choice of lineage.

The House De Rohan has different branches. It is one of France's most prestigious families, having delivered several (prime) ministers, supreme commanders, cardinals, bishops, Dukes, Princes and the whole rambam. I think you need to have more details to find your way in the genealogical haystack of the Rohan family.

I suppose you can read the memoires of the duc de Saint Simon for inspiration. He considers the Rohans foreign nobility btw.

I doubt any member of house of Rohan would have emigrated at that point in time. They were enormously rich and had no need to move abroad for fortune.
